If you have determined that your headlamps are suffering from a failed or failing clear coat or other contaminants, the only long-lasting solution to visibility issue is a sanding process. Yes, we are aware of the wipe-on and spray-on products that provide TEMPORARY clarity, but you should realize that you are only covering up the issue if you don’t remove the source of the cloudiness. To have to remove this "coating" (which will eventually also turn cloudy) as well as the original underlining coating issue can turn into a major undertaking that could have been avoided by sanding in the first place.
While sanding does take more time than the basic application, it is the only proper way to restore a headlamp that has any type of coating on it.
There are several sanding kits available from local auto parts stores. The one we prefer is the 3M Sanding Kit. (just use the sanding disc(s) provided and not the compound included in these kits) If you use compound (which contain abrasives) on a newly sanded surface, you are introducing micro-swirl marks on the surface. These swirl marks will trap wax or other contaminants and will eventually turn the same yellow or cloudiness that you are attempting to fix.
For the complete steps in the sanding process for headlamps, please follow the steps as shown in the video on this page.
